ABC fired celebrity chef Mario Batali as co-host of "The Chew."
After that, he was forced to step down from his international hospitality group. Food Network also froze plans to revive Batali's hit show "Molto Mario."
ABC had asked Batali to temporarily leave the daytime cooking show while it reviewed the allegations.
A network spokesperson spoke about Batali's termination, saying, "While we remain unaware of any type of inappropriate behavior involving him and anyone affiliated with our show, ABC takes matters like this very seriously ... and his past behavior violates our standards of conduct."
Batali was with "The Chew" since its premiere in 2011. As of Friday morning, ABC hadn't said if it will replace him.
